(see pic above)...
Had a carrier that has over 1,000 prostars in their fleet inform me a long time ago that I shoud remove/disconnect this same jump-start post at the battery terminals on my truck. They said they had several trucks burn to the ground over shorts due to corrosion, etc. getting into that same wire you have there. -- I removed mine entirely, all the way back to the batteries a long time ago.

Just thought I would mention it.

Also, all the wires you added need an outer layer of split-loom, or some other secondary protective sheeth to be D.O.T. compliant.

RE: Alternative APU System I saw last night.
I have it for almost 4 years now. Working good.

The pictured setup (in post#1) shows example of horrible dangerous craftsmanship or lack of it.
Supporting structure weak and will fail in case anything hit the side fairing.
Freon copper pipe has lot of play and vibration will brake it very soon.
Compressor unit sitting too high on the cab. This will move center of gravity point up and amplify side to side shaking.
No brackets to secure compressor from front-back inertia force.There is only 8 spot weld points hold the compressor unit to the rest of this mess.
Here is how it should be done

Hey Snail express,

Seen on the road
   
   
Aux jug is a little funky and I'd want a cover for the genset. Basic idea of setting it on the catwalk works for me.
